From the Heart – October 2019

Grand Bahama Island (Hurricane) / 88,515 Meals Over 15 Days

Operation BBQ Relief responded after Hurricane Dorian caused major damage in the Grand Bahamas. This deployment brought an additional dimension of logistical complexity as we were flying meals to their destination. Inclement weather and mechanical issues grounded planes unexpectedly, but that didn’t stop the prepared meals from being distributed locally. The Always Serving Project (our non-disaster arm) kicked into gear and delivered 9350 meals to First Responders and shelters in the Ft. Lauderdale area. Two major milestones occured during this deployment: OBR’s 3 Million Meal mark and our first International deployment.
